The basis of the early intervention strategy is to detect when and where populations begin to rise and then to target those areas for treatment. To accomplish this, it will be necessary for citizens to be engaged in this process. The provincial governments have a role in monitoring as do woodlot owners and everyday citizens. All have a role in helping to detect rising and migrating budworm populations and protecting our forests.
